With each new Home for Hope that is built, I become more and more grateful for the effort and commitment our builders and trade partners have given to the organization. Since 1999, over 10 million dollars has been raised by Homes for Hope to aid the HOPE International mission and put an end to poverty. As new projects continue to be built, word of the organization will spread and this number will continue to grow.
We at Homes for Hope are excited to announce that there are currently 11 Homes for Hope in progress! These projects are projected and on schedule to be completed before the end of the 2014 year. Of these 11 homes, five are the first to be built in their states. This national expansion is huge for the organization, and we are hopeful that interest will be sparked for more Homes for Hope to be built in these states.
Why is it so important that these homes be built, you might ask? Upon the completion of each Home for Hope, all or a portion of the lot cost, profit and overhead is donated to Homes for Hope to support HOPE International. Through HOPE International, savings, training and small business loans are provided to poor entrepreneurs to lighten physical and spiritual poverty and provide for their families. Through each Home for Hope, we wish to empower and inspire individuals and break the vicious cycle of poverty.
